About me

It's important to find the right therapist for you.  Often it's a good idea to meet with a therapist before deciding to work with them.  With that in mind I offer a free introductory meeting,  where we can talk about what is bringing you to therapy and how we might work together.  Then you can decide whether you wish to go ahead with sessions.

Whatever is going on for you, I'd like to offer you a supportive, confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings.   There is no subject that cannot be discussed within the safety and confidentiality of the counselling session. Even when you don't know why you feel the way you do, sharing what you are feeling is a really good place to start. 

I'm known to most people as Charlie and I have worked full-time as a psychotherapeutic counsellor since 2014.  I have achieved Accreditation from the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  I am experienced in working with adults and young people, both working with individuals and facilitating therapeutic groups. Trained as a Humanistic, Person Centred psychotherapist, I also draw upon other counselling theories, such as CBT, Transactional Analysis and creative approaches as required.  The main emphasis of my approach is on the trusting, non-judgemental relationship between client and therapist, enabling you to feel comfortable to share what's going on for you.

I am currently offering face to face and Zoom appointments, I am able to offer early evening appointments online.  In order to benefit from the zoom sessions, you will need to be able to find a private space where you can talk openly for the duration of the appointment.

You can email me or give me a call on 07595 532316 to arrange a free introductory session, to help you decide whether I'm the right counsellor for you.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
